Using the biophilic design in construction projects has shown numerous benefits. Scientific studies demonstrate that incorporating elements of nature into the built environment has many benefits. Some of them are reduced stress, blood pressure levels and heart rates. At the same time it’s increasing productivity and creativity. Furthermore, by adding physical natural elements, carbon-dioxide emissions are reduced and biodiversity increased.
Nevertheless, biophilic design might have higher costs, but the perceived benefits are believed to negate this. The research shows that with biophilic design, cities like New York City can see savings nearing $470 million due to increased worker productivity and $1.7 billion from reduced crime expenses.
